Listener comments!

  Sun. 7/3/11 12:09am Camel:

Light up, people!
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:17am Julie:

what are we lighting up?
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:23am timby:

And candles, scented ones
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:44am 12539:

Is it safe to listen yet? Has Daniel left?
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:49am D. Blumin:

It's safe! Listen at will, 12539!
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:49am 12539:

See you next Saturday, Daniel.
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:51am #K:

please help, my Joe McGasko levels are low
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:53am Joe McG:

:) I could use some Vitamin #K myself.
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:56am #K:

I think I can write a prescription for that
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:58am Joe McG:

Double :)!
  Sun. 7/3/11 12:59am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Joe! Vitamin #K!
Just hanging out until the end of Single File tonight, but still craving a much-needed Joe McGasko fix!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:02am Joe McG:

Hey, Matt! 45 fix coming up in about 30.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:02am Matt from Springfield:

10-4, Joe :)
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:03am on and ohn:

god bless the alligator mask
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:03am #K:

  Sun. 7/3/11 1:04am Matt from Springfield:

I would like to say that my swag arrived last Saturday, and I've been going through all of it--enjoyable as expected (or more so!) I also like how you used the T-shirts to wrap around and secure the CDs and other trinkets, nice system!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:06am Joe McG:

Nice of you to notice, Matt! We try to protect the goodies.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:09am D. Blumin:

Happy Freedom Death Dance to you too, Surface Noise Orchestra Maestro! Off to the PATH!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:09am Matt from Springfield:

I'm seeing the Psychedelic Furs in Chapel Hill next Saturday, glad I got the WFMU shirt in time. There seems to be quite a few fans of the station in the Research Triangle area, I'm going to wear it around and see who notices!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:12am Joe McG:

Farewell, Mr. Blumin! @Matt: I bet those Furs are gettin' to be more grey than psychedelic!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:16am Matt from Springfield:

Just For Furs.
Rejuvenates any musicians' fur.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:21am Matt from Springfield:

Yes, thank you to MTA Tony--no noises or interference whatsoever! Very fine job remastering the Chameleon album!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:22am (mta) Tony:

You're welcome, Joe. Nice selection; good to hear it.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:26am (mta) Tony:

Thanks Matt; this CD (Chameleon) can be picked up for $16 @ Amazon under the title, "Frankie Valli - The Motown Years."
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:36am Matt from Springfield:

Al Stewart: "Nothing that's forced can ever be right / If it doesn't come naturally, leave it"
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:39am Joe McG:

Al must've been hanging out with Kellee.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

Sure seems like it!

And I think The Giant Sunflower were hanging out with The Mamas and Papas!
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:41am Joe McG:

That's for sure, and a sitar player, too.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:42am Matt from Springfield:

The Dillards!! OMFG Yes!!
They set their banjos on fire. Someone told me they had appeared on Andy Griffith as well.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:43am Joe McG:

I'm pretty sure that's true, Matt. They even had speaking parts.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:55am Matt from Springfield:

Solo Tommy Boyce? He sounds like the primary vocal in Boyce & Hart songs.
  Sun. 7/3/11 1:57am Joe McG:

I think it's interesting that this record has a theramin on it. Must've heard "Good Vibrations"!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:11am Brian in UK:

Good mornin' folks. since you mentioned thermins hows about this then.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:11am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for another fun SF Joe! Imagonna crash now, but thanks for the voodoo that you do so well!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:14am Joe McG:

Sleep well, young Matt. Hey, Brian, welcome!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:16am Matt from Springfield:

Cover for me, Brian!
Thanks Joe, good night!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:20am Brian in UK:

Is this Manfred Mann by Mr Newman?
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:21am Joe McG:

Sure is, Brian. I'm doing a bunch of covers of Randy's tunes as my American special.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:22am Brian in UK:

It's beautiful sunshine here today so "I think it's gonna rain today" will not be a feature!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:23am Joe McG:

Alas, I think it may be...by a British artist, no less!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:31am Brian in UK:

This fella changed his name from Ian to Iain for some reason.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:32am Chop Scott:

Ah, home for the end hour to listen!

Thanks Joe!!!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:33am Joe McG:

@Brian: Maybe he's into numerology? @Chop Scott: Great to have you along! Hope your Sat. night's been hoppin'.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:39am Joe McG:

It's so good we're going to hear it twice!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:40am blee:

don't cut the Randy!
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:45am Looms:

Hello Joe and all. Please don't cut anyone.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:48am Jay/ London:

hi joe just got up to catch some of the show
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:49am Brian in UK:

I need to check that Numero Group comp you played earlier.

Nice day Jay?
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:49am Joe McG:

Hey, Looms! Hey, Jay! Thanks for checkin' in! Sorry about cutting Randy, blee...but it was worth it, since I got to play it again.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:52am Jay/ London:

@ brain in the uk yea it sure is :)
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:54am blee:

good point!
nobody shares twice anymore.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:55am Brian in UK:

Thanks for the upgrade Jay.

Gotta go feed the chickens, Joe. Catch the early part on archive. Micky Newbury is appropriate. Good job as ever.
  Sun. 7/3/11 2:58am Joe McG:

Thanks, Brian, and thanks everyone for listening!
